Some 31 years ago I was having chest pains and went to the ER at the local hospital. A nurse wired me up to an EKG and we were watching the monitor while I sat on the edge of the bed. All of a sudden I saw it flatline. As I fell back on the bed I remember how painless, peaceful and relaxed I felt. I saw and felt I was in a tunnel and at the far end was a bright light. Before I could reach the light I was suddenly back on the hospital bed with Doctors and nurses all around. One was pounding on my chest and another was holding zappers over me. I asked a Doctor what happened and he said I had gone about one minute with no heart beat. That all there was to it. No meeting with deceased relatives and no life review. It was still a very real experience and has caused me many hours of reflection.
